The Power of a Disappointing Story

August 10, 2015

This is a guest post by John Dobbs.  Disappointment is an experience that everyone faces … and often in many varieties and shades. Sometimes disappointment comes at the hands of others, and sometimes we create it all on our own. You know, that weight you were going to lose by now. The degree you were going […]

Recognizing Beauty

August 6, 2015

“One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple.” (Psalm 27:4) God is beautiful, and it should be our desire to […]

The Power of a Biblical Story

August 6, 2015

This is a guest post by John Mark Hicks. Bible stories. Many of us have heard them since we were children. Daniel and the Lion’s Den. Noah’s Ark. Three Angels Visiting Abraham. Moses and the Burning Bush. David and Goliath. And many more! Bible stories are important.  They do more than tweak the emotions or […]

The Power of Another’s Story

August 4, 2015

This is a guest post by Peter Horne. Our Bibles contain four gospels. Each gospel author includes different details, different wording and sometimes different events in telling the story. As early as the second-century Christian leaders began the quest to harmonize the four gospels. Scholars often undertook this project to defend the Bible against claims […]

The Power of a Villain Story

July 30, 2015

This is a guest post by Tyler Jarvis. One of the things I like the most about the Bible is that it doesn’t pull any punches. I mean, there are lots of guys who are generally “good” guys but who do really crappy things. Generally, when you read a story, the main character is presented […]

A Beautiful Story

July 25, 2015

What is Christianity? It is what is good, true, and beautiful. These are the three virtues that describe our faith. God is good. God is true. God is beautiful. God embodies these virtues perfectly, but these virtues do not stop with God. What he creates is good, true, and beautiful. As Christians, we should strive […]

Grace: The Power of a Redemption Story

July 24, 2015

This is a guest post by Les Ferguson Jr. I don’t watch a lot of TV. Consequently, I often miss things that are culturally relevant. I hear about TV shows and have no clue about them at all. People talk about movies and actors and I just kind of nod my head because more often […]

The Power of a Cleansing Story

July 23, 2015

This is a guest post by Jennifer Rundlett. How do you most frequently see Jesus in your mind’s eye? When you pray, do you think of a well-worn prayer card that someone gave you as a child? Perhaps you might think of a beautifully carved crucifix that adorns the altarpiece of your church sanctuary? Still others of us might think […]

The Power of an Ordinary Story

July 13, 2015

This is a guest post by Danny Dodd. Ordinary is an interesting word. It was a word once used for some of Christ’s disciples (see Acts 4:13). It usually denotes “nothing special,” “average,” “normal.” Nothing to see here, so just keep moving on. An ordinary story? I’ll pass. Give me the extra-ordinary; the dramatic; the […]

A Good Example

July 11, 2015

At the end of 2 Corinthians, Paul encourages the congregation to “examine yourselves.” In the book of Philippians, he says to “work out your salvation.” The focus throughout much of Paul’s letter is what we can do as individuals to bring about positive change in our lives. Religious people are sometimes known for telling other […]
